There seems a fair smattering of aviation types here on TD, so I thought it would be useful to have a thread where various events related to the airline industry could be posted. (Mods: if this is not the right place please feel free to move the thread).
First off this from Stuff NZ today

Klongmaster, I think it is a real good idea. Lets work out where the Mods decide to stick it. BTW I do not know if you have seen this website. Professional Pilots Rumour Network PPRuNe Forums - Professional Pilots Rumour Network . This a serious (well 95%) website. Cheers TP

Mar. 1 - A Lufthansa plane escapes disaster during a landing attempt in stormy weather. The flight had more than 130 passengers on board when it was pummelled by crosswinds when trying to touch down at Hamburg's Fuhlsbuettel airport. The pilot scraped the Airbus A320's wing on the runway but averted disaster by aborting the landing and taking off again.

I always have mixed feelings when reading about how a pilot averted "disaster."
Especially when weather is involved. In almost every case, a small voice inside my head says the pilot shouldn't have been there in the first place.
I know weather can form almost instantly, and in those cases, good on the pilot. Safety of the passengers is the MAIN duty of any commercial pilot -- even more important than getting passengers to their destination.
No pilot in his right mind would try landing in 150 mph winds unless he was bingo.

Well, by what the video shows.....I'll add Lufthanza to Garuda, China Eastern and a few others who I will not fly with on my perception of the calibre of the pilots.
What kind of Flight Deck SOP's exist with this company??
I should have gone around at least 1km out by the bucketing it was recieving.
Wind socks don't tell lies!!
"The pilot reacted astondingly"..... LATE!!!

We don't have that one enabled, with youtube you also have to make sure there are less than 5 hotlinked to it, ie under the vid it tells you how many links, so if it's hot news you have to keep looking for new vids and get in there quick

No EG: 95 different families...that just means that the count is not in individuals but by the number of families currently registered here...the point being that most kiwis living here come with their wives and children....most but not all obviously...
